This museum I recommend to a persons who are really interest at this. The price is bigger and I expected more, but it was good for me with audio guide. It is small museum, so be ready to wait in front.

The "Museum" is very disappointing : It is where Freud established his medical practice, so the place is very small and gets crowded quickly ! Really disappointed by this visit, it doesn't worth to go into it while you are in Vienna as there are so many other beautiful places to visit in the city. The place has a lot... More

The museum can't host too many people, it gets really crowded. I suggest get there on time, in the morning. Inside you'll be given an audioguide with many information of the historical facts of Freud's life and the building. I don't think it's worth it the price of the ticket (9euro).

The cool thing about the museum is that it is located in the former apartment of Dr Freud, with some actual pieces of furniture (of which a couch of course). Yet, not being passionate about psychology and s. freud (and not at all knowledgeable on the topic), i would have appreciated more "basic" background material (e.g. S. Freud detailed bio,... More

Not very engaging lots of audio and pictures but not very engaging lots of potential, but was worthy of seeing. Takes about 45-60mins and costs 7-9 Euros.

If you have any interest at all in psychoanalysis this museum is worth visiting. Rooms laid out the way they were in his life before he had to flee to London. Good audio descriptions of history and good book shop. Post cards and newspaper cuttings reveal more of the man. Fascinating!

not expensive, about 9euro and it can be done in 30-45min. you'll be exactly where he spent his life and carrier. Just to be there is already cool. You won' t see the couch on another hand.

This was the actual apartment were Dr.Freud had his famous clinic. The original floors and walls are kept and you get head phones and listen to explanation to every room and every piece of photo/newspapar magazine on the wall. This place is small and requires a lot of listening. It is NOT suitable for kids. They will get bored. The... More

I enjoyed this museum; however, it is about the life of Sigmund Freud (not about his theories). Although, you can purchase his works, essays, and other Freudian-inspired material in the gift shop. I'd recommend this museum to those interested in Sigmund Freud, and it is pretty family oriented. However, I would not recommend it to adolescents (under 14). I think... More

My guidebook depicts this museum as one of the "Top Sites" inside Vienna. Except some antique collection of Dr. Sigmund Freud, all items being displayed are old furnitures, photographs and papers. I know that Dr. Freud is a great psychologist but can't realize the value of this museum.
